When the Nets made the deal for Sasha Vujacic, they received a versatile player who could fill in at multiple positions.
Avery Johnson liked having this luxury, and it allowed a number of players to contribute. Even Jordan Farmar saw time at the shooting guard position.
The Nets should look to draft versatile players who have experience playing more than one position. In this way, Johnson can keep everyone fresh for late in the game/season.
Travis Leslie of Georgia is one of the top athletes in the draft. Though just 6’4”, he played both shooting guard and small forward due to his combination of strength and speed.
Butler guard Shelvin Mack made a name for himself during the Bulldogs run to the National Championship. Mack has experience at both guard positions, and could fill in nicely for Deron Williams or Anthony Morrow.
UCLA’s Malcolm Lee could also be an option. NBAdraft.net projects lee as the Nets pick at No. 36. He averaged 13.1 points, but would have to improve his long range shooting to thrive in a combo-guard role.
